NAWEA/WindTech 2019 Conference

The NAWEA/WindTech 2019 Conference will take place at the University of Massachusetts Amherst on October 14 –16, 2019. This will be an opportunity for wind energy academics and researchers to discuss the Grand Vision for Wind Energy and its implications. Thought leaders from around the world will present on the pivotal role these technologies will play in the transition from a system based primarily on fossil fuels to one primarily supported by renewable energy. The conference will discuss the grand challenges in wind energy science needed for technological advancements as well as social science and policy aspects related to the transition to the renewable-dominated energy system of the future. This conference joins the longstanding North American Wind Energy Academy (NAWEA) Symposium and the International Conference on Future Technologies in Wind Energy (WindTech) and is developed in collaboration with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the European Academy of Wind Energy.

The conference is dedicated to research and education, and will include technical sessions, panel discussions, a graduate student symposium, a poster session, engineering software workshops, business meetings, social events, and opportunities for interesting excursions. Visit the  conference website for additional details.

Registration includes breakfasts, coffee breaks and lunches for all 3 days, as well as the opening reception on Monday, October 10. There will be additional charges for the optional banquet on Tuesday evening and possible field trips on Thursday. On Thursday the conference is exploring the possibility of arranging some field trips (Block Island Offshore Wind Farm, Wind Technology Testing Center, Marine Commerce Terminal): attendees can indicate interest in one or more of these possible field trips during registration.
